Printed Matter is nervous to announce BOOTLEG T SHIRT SHOW PART II.

Opening Party Thurs, Dec 10, 6-9PM

231 Eleventh Avenue
New York, NY 10001

The second installment of this show is once again offering artist-made shirts featuring designs that take their cues from fake Canal Street copies and mashed up logos — all appropriations, which play a big part in the art and artists’ book worlds.

Some designs reference iconic bands like Black Flag, Sex Pistols, Pavement; some reference artists like Ray Johnson, Tom Sachs, Allen Ginsberg, Raymond Pettibon; some reference fashion labels like Westwood and PALACE SKATEBOARDS; a couple riff on social justice groups like the Black Panthers and the Symbionese Liberation Army; a few rebrand corporate logos (COSCO’s Kirkland and Mercedes Benz get a makeover) and Woody Allan and Princess Diana make small cameos.

Each design is an homage to an original; some are literally facsimile reprints, while others have been altered to take on whole new meanings.

Most designs probably make infringements on standard copyright laws, and the show might just cause a few cease and desists – get them while stock lasts.

The opening night party will featured a performance from gender-problematizing goth dance band BOTTOMS, playing tracks from their new EP Goodbye.
